I built this table using an old Singer Treadle sewing machine base and reclaimed pallet wood. After dismantling the pallet I Ran the boards through a planer to clean them up. After selecting wood some from my recovered stock I did dowel and glue joins for the table top and a re-enforcing back frame out of more pallet wood.
The top was then run through the surface planer a couple more times then I ran the edges through the router table. Sanded it down to 320. Then add 12 layers or so of wipe on poly. I did a heavy coat of brush poly to the underside. Just add 4 machine screws and an old singer treadle base and Presto! a table for our upper landing.
(The cat cost extra but he is convinced I built this just for him)
